UPDATES

WDSF eCARDS

WDSF have updated the ID card system with a new eCard from 1 October 2017. The old plastic ID-Cards will still be valid until their expiry.

All new eCards will be issued online by the WDSF - more information and the online application form can be found here. From 1 October 2017 DNZ and all WDSF member bodies will no longer process applications.

These changes have been implemented to streamline the process and are in line with the motions passed at the 2017 WDSF AGM where the meeting agreed to change the card from a 5 year life to an annual renewal. The fees have also been changed.

If you are dancing in a WDSF event in Australia or Internationally you will need a valid WDSF eCard or ID-Card. A requirement for either card is to hold a valid DanceSport New Zealand licence.
